A Slew of 'Transformers' Options at Retail26 Sep, 2017 By: John Latchem
The big national retailers inundated consumers with a number of exclusive versions of Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight Sept. 26.
Best Buy offered three Steelbook editions containing the new film — Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD versions, plus a Steelbook five-film collection.
Target offered a version of the Blu-ray combo pack with special box art and an exclusive bonus disc containing 50 minutes of additional content.
Walmart offered a couple of gift sets containing the fifth live-action "Transformers" movie. One had the Blu-ray combo pack with die-cast miniatures of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in vehicle form. Another had the UHD version with an "immersive 360-degree video experience" and limited-edition viewing goggles.
Among other titles, Best Buy had a line of Marvel Cinematic Universe Blu-rays with new box art. These are slimmed down from the usual Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and contain just the Blu-ray and Digital HD for $19.99 each.
